New Law Requires New York Schools To Honor 9/11
As the 18th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks nears, Governor Andrew Cuomo approved a state law that will requite New York schools to observe the day with a brief moment of silence.
The moment of silence will start at the beginning of the school day, according to the NY Post. The hope is to help spread education about the events of that day, especially now that just about all school age kids were not even born when the terror attacks occurred.
9/11 was one of the single darkest periods in this state’s and this nation’s history, and we owe it to those we lost and to the countless heroes who ran toward danger that day and the days that followed to do everything we can to keep their memory alive.
